The service was very good the food was of a class beyond our expectations, I had rib eye that was cooked to perfection. I’m a bit of a food snob but our meals were OUTSTANDING..

You can’t beat Timothy Taylor’s “Landlord” beer in my view. To drink a pint watching the canal is especially pleasing. This is a friendly pub well thought of by locals and visitors alike. Watch out for events. Bring your dog and walk along the towpath...More

What a super pub. The staff are exceptionally helpful, friendly and accommodating. They couldn’t have done anymore to help us after our vehicle broke down after dark. The food is excellent and they have a vast selection of drinks available🎊🎉

We love this pub and the food is always great. We were not disappointed when we went to celebrate my husbands 50th Birthday. The food and service again was excellent and positive comments from all in our party of 10.

Nice canal side pub, nice menu with some interesting options. We had starters and mains....didn’t need the starters. Beef carpaccio was nice but the dressing made it overly salty. Ham egg and chips/fish and chips were huge. Can not say what the puddings are like...More

As it's in the canal path I believe so. They also have a lovely outdoor space for warmer days.
